Subject: Re: French Alps village?
Anne, I agree with Annecy. we've been there twice, both times in the late winter, a few years ago. The scenery was spectacular, and there are no crowds. The weeping willows are just turning green.

We took a drive to Megev, a ski resort town just (according to my memory) a couple of hours away. The drive between Annecy and Megev was very scenic, too.
